We signed a 1 year contract with Direct Tv. We got roped in with the low prices and plethra of channels we would receive. We switched to Direct Tv because we were told we would get a discount on our telephone services. Our services started out well.
We did get tons of channels and our bill was low. However it all went downhill shortly after. The satellite would go out with a high rain and even when it was sprinkling. Also we never received our discount on our telephone bill. Customer service was not very knowledgable or helpful.
The straw that broke the camels back is when they wanted us to pay a tech fee for someone to come out and look at our satellite because we were not receiving the local channels. Our one year was up and we disconnected services with Direct Tv.
I highly recommend NOT to go with Direct Tv. Dealing with outages and their customer service is a headache!
